San Antonio Spurs Daily Links: April 9, 2014

According to NBA.com, the San Antonio Spurs never lead the Minnesota Timberwolves last night, who delivered Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and company their second loss in 22 games. Kevin Love won’t see the playoffs again this year, though the Wolves have beaten both the Spurs and the Miami Heat through their last three games. This was a huge loss for the Spurs in terms of getting that much-coveted No. 1 seed.

Joe Flynn of Bleacher Report sums up a one-sentence quote from Gregg Popovich that sums up the complete success of the San Antonio Spurs:

Michael Rehome of Project Spurs addresses the end of the season for the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs have eight games left until the playoffs, and their next five opponents would be in the playoffs, if they started today. A huge game is against the Houston Rockets next week, who have dominated the Spurs since acquiring Dwight Howard in free agency. I think that the Spurs should rest their players for games like this and not care about the No. 1 seed; health is more important than all, especially in the playoffs (and especially for old geezers on the team).

Here are some tweets on last night’s surprising defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves:
